Compatible Patch antenna extension

Would an AIR-CAB005LL-R work as an extension for MA-ANT-3-E6? I need a 5-foot extension.

Technically it looks like it should work, but I would probably advise against using an extension (if possible) as it will introduce some loss and another device in line that could fail etc.

Also I'm going to take a wild guess and say that if there are any issues, support probably won't be able to officially assist if using those.

These are the loss rates at 5 feet:

2.4GHz - 0.5 dB
5.8GHz - 0.8 dB

@Rogelio did you end up using an extension and if so did you have any issues?  I'm looking to possibly extend an MA-ANT-3-C6 connected to an MR46E.

Looks like the AIR-CAB005LL-R= is the Meraki recommended cable, see here: https://documentation.meraki.com/MR/Other_Topics/Frequently_Asked_Questions_regarding_Cisco_Meraki_A...
